I used a different prep provider for Part 1, and believe the only reason I passed was that I found some BT videos on YouTube and watched them over and over again. I said if I passed Part 1 that I would definitely use BT for Part 2, and I did. I even did better on Part 2 than Part 1 (3,2,1,1,2). I have already recommended BT to a few colleagues who were on Part 1 and blown away by how unprepared they were. Thanks for your help David and BT! Original post in forum.Adam SchrierJanuary 3, 2017
It's game over, man! I did it! David you are the 'man tonight' - this is for sure! I am comparing the win of the US open by Stan Wawrinka over Djokovic last year when he was interviewed by Tom Rinaldi from ESPN. Original post in forum.Dan WeinzettlJanuary 2, 2017
A HUGE THANK YOU TO DAVID. We have all bought services but this is different. This is much more than transactional. Very rarely we come across people who are so humble, balanced and giving. Sir, your commitment towards your profession has touched my soul, has inspired me. I wish I can sometime meet you in person and express my gratitude. You are the best teacher ever.

My name is Brian Field and I relied on Bionic Turtle for my FRM Preparation. Not only did David and the Bionic Turtle Team exceed my expectations for the FRM exam, I expect to rely on this product in my professional career going forward. Specifically, I found the Professional Subscription to be especially helpful as it provided me with extensive implementations of the subject matter. Remarkably, I have already applied much of it in my work. I simply cannot express the value I found in the Bionic Turtle product. As a result of my studies with Bionic Turtle, of my interaction with David and others in the Bionic Turtle Forum, I consider David a close friend. Indeed, I have made many friends in the forum through my exam preparation. To put it succinctly, Bionic Turtle is the industry leader for FRM Exam preparation and, even more, it is a leader in online exam preparation and contemporary education. Thank you Bionic Turtle!Brian FieldJuly 18, 2016
David, you are definitely the hero of the day! Your work and explanations are simply second-to-none; unparalleled! Thank you!

I passed as well. I used the books from GARP and BT and I can say that I would never have made it without BT. Thank's a lot BT and David Harper.

I want to thank David Harper and Nicole Manley, not only for their preparatory materials, but also for their support. I also want to express especially their extreme kindness and helpfulness without expressing any frustration at any time! This gives the forum a positive attitude toward studying, which helps enormously! Thank you BT-Team. (Original post in forum)AennyFebruary 29, 2016
I use this opportunity to convey my sincere regards and wholehearted appreciation to 'The David Harper'. Really speaking, no other video on You Tube, let it be for clarity of thoughts, speech, subject knowledge, listener's point of view and even the weight in the voice, has been as impressive as that of David Guru Ji.

I am writing this to express my gratitude to David - who helped me bring down the Goliath name FRM. I chanced upon BT while looking at some forums. Just my seeing some samples I knew that this would fit me. I would say that any single word related to Finance and risk that I understand is due to David and BT- notes, tons of questions, videos and forum. I have no words to express my gratitude to David. It is only because of him. I saw him talking in one of his video and wanted to shake his hands right there. David you are the true beacon to so many risk professionals.

David! Your resource is definitely the best! FRM PART 2 Passed!!! Exam problems are much harder than given in another prep provider's materials! And much trickier than GARP Practice exams! And questions are intricately formulated, even for me (I hail from Moscow) who passed TOEFL with 102 score and have been learning English for my whole life. Without you and Nicole, I could hardly approach this FRM, You are always helpful and look into the crux of the matter, so thanks a lot and continue this way, I will never forget this amazing experience of learning and practicing!

I would just like to share that I passed FRM Part 2 (as well as Part 1) using Bionic Turtle.
(1) First of all, I purchased the Part 1 and 2 professional package. I really appreciated the quick responses I got from Nicole when I emailed asking about BT. I used BT for part 1 and part 2 and I have no GARP reading materials.
(2) I find the notes, spreadsheets and videos very useful (including the chapter review videos. I think the key to passing the exams is active studying (that is answering the questions)).
(3) Very valuable for me also is the forum. I need not ask lots of questions in the forum because most of my questions were already asked in the past. I also learn from following the answers of active members and David to some questions.
In my opinion, BT is did help me prepare for the exams. It is not a perfect replacement for the original material/readings, and will not work for everyone (since every person has a different base knowledge). Again thank you.Lloyd Dagdag, FRM CIAJanuary 18, 2016
I want to thank a lot David and Nicole for your professionalism and for very precise answers to many questions posted here. I used another prep provider on L1, it did the job but with BT it was a completely different experience. The videos and Excel spreadsheet were really helpful for me to have a grasp of the concepts. I wasn't only cramming for an exam but actually I have been learning a lot during the whole journey.S.L., Senior Financial AnalystJanuary 7, 2016
